Start Preamble

Proposed Projects: Childcare.gov.

Title: CCDF Grantee Consumer Education Database Linkages with Childcare.gov.

OMB No.: New.

Description: The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 requires HHS to create a national Web site for consumer education. The National Web site will be hosted at childcare.gov. CCDBG grantees are also required to stand up child care consumer education Web sites that meet the requirements of the law. The CCDBG Final Rule aligns the National and State Web sites by requiring Lead Agencies to provide HHS with linkages to their databases that store consumer education information. The Childcare.gov Web site, maintained by Office of Child care will collect child care specific information from State and Territory databases and make that information available for parents using the childcare.gov Web site to search for child care that meets their needs. Childcare.gov will provide consumers, directly or through linkages to State and Territory data sources, with the following minimum information and services:

(1) A localized list of all eligible child care providers, differentiating between licensed and license-exempt providers;

(2) Child care provider-specific information from a quality rating and improvement system or information about other quality indicators, to the extent that such information is publicly available and practicable.

Respondents: CCDBG grantees in States and Territories.
